and afghanistan has made it the focus of al qaeda threat in the past. >> on the surface it is a very unusual target. al qaeda is trying to hit softer, more powerful role targets other than america and britain. >> tonight, soldiers are on the streets of oslo and norway's government is holding crisis meetings. there is shock that the city's peace could be shattered like this. >> and just a brief time ago, president obama spoke about these attacks with the new zealand -- with new zealand's prime minister. >> i want to personally extend my condolences to the people of norway, and it is a reminder that the entire international community has a stake in preventing this kind of terror. we have to work cooperatively both on intelligence and in terms of prevention. >> joining me now to discuss the motivation of who might have been behind the attacks as the former u.s. deputy national security adviser who is currently at the center for strategic and international studies. thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> why would note -- norway bbea target for attacks? >> it is a peaceful country, but it h
. this is obviously a norwegian man. previous speculation were more surrounding that norway is involved in afghanistan and libya at the moment, but we do not know whether this has anything to do with these incidents today. this was the labor party youth camp that is held on the island every year. the prime minister is the head of the labor party here in norway. it seemed very targeted toward the government and toward maybe the party -- that party especially, without knowing exactly why that party has been targeted. >> thank you. and for more on who may have been behind this -- these attacks, you can -- let's go to frank gardner in london. what is your analysis based on the information we have so far? >> i have to say the right now it is looking more like a timothy mcveigh style attack. the mayor also told us a short while ago that the same person carried out the bombing in central oslo and then two hours later the shooting spree on the island. the distance is only about 3445 minutes. the attacks were separated by two hours -- only about 30 to 45 minutes. the attacks were separated by two hours. the ch
in iraq and afghanistan. what they need to look at specifically is with the promise of doing tax reform in the fall through december what is the guaranteed tax reform gets done and there is new revenue. you eluded to it. republicans say if democrats don't keep up their end of the bargain we get rid of president obama's individual mandate. democrats say we get rid of the bush tax kults 250 or above. they're working on the trigger mechanism. it's going to take many differentists and turns. it's looking like wednesday is the closest thing we've heard all along in this process that a firm deadline needed to work out the compromise. >> luke, some exclosive issues in that mix. this is going to be a really interesting negotiation to follow. >> a long way to go, andrea. there's still a long way to go. next week's the real crunch time. we'll have a fun weekend. >> thank you, luke up up on the hill for us. senator kent conrad chairs the budget committee and is a member of the gang of six and joins me now senator, your colleagues have been exploding over the secrecy of this. you can say nothing is
, they're taking part in afghanistan, they also -- like their scandinavian neighbor denmark -- did have an uproar over the cartoons. but an uproar that i should mention that the norwegian government went out of it way to apologize for. so, basically, it's normally seen as a soft target because it's a peaceful country and considered that. one more thing, rick, you know, it's interesting that the actual nobel prize for peace is given out in oslo, but today it seems very far from that. rick? rick: good observation there. greg burke streaming live for us from europe. thanks very much. jenna: back stateside, it's hot outside. at least 17 states have temperatures above 100 degrees, and more than 20 people have died this this brutal heat wave. utility companies are struggling to keep the juice on in so many places. adam shapiro is in new york city's central park with more. hi, adam. >> reporter: hey, jenna, and it is so hot out here, i'm spritzing the atlantic ocean. i'm going to tell you not only how you can save money, but how you can make money, have the utility company pay you in a heat wa
country, why? well, they've been active in afghanistan, had a deployment there for several years, active in the libyan air campaign, the cartoon issue. also, what we're finding in scandinavia is groups themselves are coming together from denmark, sweden, and norway, different ethnicities gathering and meeting in mosques, and they are adjacent -- they're local to norway, sweden, denmark. know where the targets are. and saying a man who lived in norway, head of a very radical sunni group from northern iraq who was prosecuted because he'd threatened norwegian ministers because he was going to be deported. he said, you deport me and i get killed in iraq, the same will happen to norwegian ministers. so they do have this fringe in scandinavian countries of islamist militants. >> when i have questions about terrorism here, i often come you and ask you, you know, who these people are, what's going on here. in terms of who might be behind this, who do you think? >> it could be a whole range of groups. but the point is that al qaeda is not so much an organization. it's more a spirit for these peop
in afghanistan or iraq or perhaps the publications of some of these cartoons of the profit mohammed. >> we'll stay in touch with you. thanks very much for helping us. >> thanks a lot. >> obama spoke out about the attacks in norway from the white house not that long ago and he condemned the violence. >> we want to prevent this kind of terror from occurring. we have cooperated with both intelligence and in terms of prevention of these kinds of horrible attacks. >> what's going on? >> so far no official request from norway for help, but a top counterterrorism official says you should expect to see both countries, they have a very close relationship. expect to see them share everything they can on intelligence. where might the norwegians start to look for clues? it whether start right on the streets of oslo. they will look at those buildings with or without u.s. help. they will look at the destruction. was that reinforced steel? was it reinforced concrete? how wide a area? that will help them calculate the size of the bomb, the power of the bomb. and they will get into bomb forensics, if you w
in the united states with a young man who went across to afghanistan. he had no muslim background whatsoever, but he went to wage jihad. it's not unknown for europeans to become enamored of this international jihadist project. >> let me just ask a really simple question. why norway? why norway? and why can't we conclusively say yes, this is al qaeda or yes, these are international terrorists. >> we can't see inconclusively that it's al qaeda. it's so soon. there's one somewhat plausibility group to have responsibility that comes from a group in iraq that was connected to the stockholm suicide bomber in in 2010. it's plausible without being plausible. he posted a photograph of a young man literally hours after the stockholm attack before anyone in the world knew who carried that attack out. so he did know. so that's a plausible claim. why norway? 5 million people, norwegian newspapers have repeatedly published the mohammed cartoons. there was a plot last year that was wrapped up in norway where at least one of the defendants has admitted they were going to go after one of the norwegian newspa
norway would be targeting for supporting the u.s. war in afghanistan. after a norwegian newspaper reprinted cartoons of the prophet mohammed in 2006, once again al qaeda called for revenge. then last july, three alleged al qaeda operatives were arrested inside norway for plotting to hit targets there. but i have to say, there have been no claims of responsibility u.s. officials say right now there's no solid evidence this is al qaeda. there's a wide field of suspects including political radicals. >> schieffer: okay. well, thank you very much, bob. bob orr in washington. well, yes, it is july, and it's supposed to be hot in july. but it's hard to remember it being this hot. today the east coast got a full dose of the heat wave that's blamed for 34 deaths nationwide. in new york and atlantic city, the temperature actually hit 104. baltimore and washington saw 105. and it felt a lot hotter. here's jim axelrod. >> reporter: in the last week, 1,472 temperature records have been set or tied across the country. newark, new jersey, hit 108 degrees, the highest temperature ever recorded th
? >> reporter: the first thought, with norway's participation in afghanistan, it may have been al qaeda. but it's a lone norwegian, said to be in his 30s, a military veteran who has grievances with the government and now talking to police, a kind of norway version of timothy mcveigh, the american military vet who blew up the building in oklahoma city. >> so, what do you know about the bomb itself? >> reporter: well, the bomb went off. it is not as high explosives as they thought. homemade. they also found several other undetonated bombs on that island at the youth camp, which he had taken with him. >> we're looking at the debris right now. and we all began thinking about buildings here in this country today and that video of the practice run with the barriers we set up in front of so many buildings across this country. >> reporter: the u.s. has been individual lenlt in protecting government buildings. it probably wouldn't happen in the u.s. as it happened there. but that particular video of the truck ramming a barrier in the u.s., an example of what's been done here, the kind of steps that the
with a lot already. he's managing wars and conflict in iraq, afghanistan, and libya. and here's at home -- here at home, he's locked into the battle every on the debt ceiling and adding to the budget. after that, he came directly to hear from voters and their concerns and how they run their daily lives. >> hello, maryland! [ cheering ] >> hello! >> reporter: mr. obama received a warm welcome here at ritchie coliseum, acknowledging that even the president is affected by the heat. >> i see some smart folks up there wore shorts. my team said i should not wear shorts. [ laughter ] my legs aren't good enough to wear shorts. [ laughter ] >> reporter: but then it was down to business as the president talked about the looming financial crisis facing the country. >> the first thing i wake up when i -- think about when i wake up in the morning, the last thing i think about when i go to bed at night. and i won't be satisfied until every american who wants a job can find one, and until workers are getting paychecks that actually pay the bills. >> reporter: then came the questions, ranging from issu
of the nato mission in both afghanistan and libya and frankly is going to be a target and it looks like today was the day unfortunately. >> police believe these attacks are related. do you have any insight as to why? they are so different, the bombing that we see, the result of downtown oslow and at a camp. why do they believe these two are related? because of the timing? >> the timing is the most obvious factor. these are both terrorist tactics that have been used previously by al-qaeda and al- qaeda inspired groups. what happened in mumbai in 2008, killed over 150 people. that's a mass shooting, bombings are a common occurrence in iraq and other places where al-qaeda is used vehicle born explosive devices. >> what kind of planning went into this? obviously more than one person. >> right, it's very sophisticated attack and another reason to suspect that there's a larger terrorism network involved here. it's unlikely that a single dure durageed individual -- as well as carry out this attack. two-prong attack, both very different methods, potentially by the same individual. we know there i
plate. he's managing three wars and conflicts in iraq, afghanistan, and libbia. he, of course, has the debt ceiling on going on capitol hill, which apparently is not going on. and he comes here to the university of maryland to talk to college students and constituents. and as a result, he held a town hall meeting here to meet with his voters. ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states. >> reporter: mr. obama received a warm welcome and acknowledged that even the president is affected by the heat. >> i see some smart folks up there wore shorts. my team said i should not wear shorts. my legs are not good must enough to wear shorts. [ laughter ] >> reporter: but then as he talked about the looming financial crisis in the country. >> first thing i wake up thinking about in the morning and last thing i think about when i go to bed at night. and i won't be satisfied until every american who wants to find a job can find one and until workers are getting paychecks that are actually paying the bills. >> reporter: then came the question of jobs. strengthening neighborhoods to t
have to think of terrorism. norway has been an active member of the coalition in afghanistan and they are an active member of nato, i should say, and they have been active in the current conflict in libya. an interesting subnote on the possible al qaeda link, they have, since 2005, offered asylum to a former leader of an al qaeda group based in northern iraq and they are now trying to deport him and have been trying to deport him and he just in the past few weeks has been threatening damage, threatening violence against the government there. the word from the prime minister, by the way, is that "we will not cave in," but a final note, not to draw this further than we can say, but what was done, what was achieved, is death of adults, maybe adults involved in the government, in that city. detects of, perhaps, the children of the officials of the government on the island. we are still learning more. >> thank you, greg, thank you very much. investigators in southern california waiting for test results in the mysterious deaths of a farm suit executive six-year-old son and 32-year-
of nato, and has been active in afghanistan and libya. prosecuters filed charges against an islamic cleric who allegedly threatened to kill norwegian politicians. bora is from oslo and president of the san francisco norwegian club. >> i'm absolutely stunned. you know? i think all of the members of the norwegian community here in san francisco and bay area are just, you know, we're in shock. and we're so saddened. >> his parents and sister live in oslo. he's been in touch with them and following vemments on social media. >> there is a about from what i understand several thousand norwegian citizens in the bay area. i speak for all of us, i think when i say this is a tragedy and our thoughts and prayers are going to our friends and family in norway, right now. >> police say they don't know the motive or if the attacks were the work of one person or a terrorist group. >> and thank you, hajer, here in the bay area, san francisco forensics experts determined a 19-year-old probably killed himself in an officer-involved shooting. police are intensifying efforts to find the missing guchblt last we
in the operations in afghanistan or iraq. there doesn't appear to be a particular reason for why that nation should be targeted. >> well, norway does have special forces operating around kabul, has had for a long time, and has declined to remove them. and inspite of, you know, multiple warnings from zawahiri and others, and if you look at the internet buzz on the gjihad websites that is why norway would be attacked, and another possibility is that there was a norwegian magazine a few years ago that republished the danish cartoons that muslims found offensive, and that was mentioned today, even though the norwegian government apologized for that publication. there was a thwarted attack last year that al qaeda central was believed to be responsible for. so it is not as if this is something that has been pristine in terms of threats. this is the country that has seen a number of threats, and i think that also having president obama make that statement publicly today indicates that the u.s. government at least believes if not confirms that this is a gee hjihadi attack an qaeda central attack. >> thank
, singled norway out. it's in afghanistan, it's part of nato. it republished the images of the prophet mohammed, which originally were published in a danish newspaper some years back. so many years why a group like al qaeda and other jihadist groups may want to come after a country like norway, brooke. >> i don't know if you were able to hear nima, but she was describing to me that some eyewitnesss there on the streets described a mangled car, perhaps the bomb, perhaps a car bomb. she also said perhaps it was inside the lobby of the building that housed the prime minister. as we said, he wasn't there at the time. this kind of thing would never happen on 10 downing street, but it's happening here in oslo. what do you make of the level of sophistication of the bomb? >> i think we're talking about a relatively high level of sophistication here. the carnage recalls the theme in 1998 of the u.s. african embassies that were targeted by al qaeda. this was a huge bomb that was exploded today. it seems to have killed, unfortunately, significant amount of people. also, coordinated attacks it see
of reasons, also troops in afghanistan, have worked with the united states on some things overseas. when we see the bomb, we don't know much about it yet, but maybe you know more from your sources. when you see the devastation, it's not a small bomb, because damage is high up, and the police say undetonated explosives were found on the island where the horrific shooting happens with the children at the labor camp. when you see that, the sophistication, the power of the bomb, what does it tell you? >> it suggests this more than the work of a single individual. remember we saw the times square bomber. one guy trying to accumulate the materials and detonate it at the time of his choosing, it's hard to do. it suggests there's more than a single individual. the other thing is there was a norwegian journalist media report suggesting that the guy, the individual they have in custody, was a farmer who might have had access to the sort of fertilizer that was anothused te the oklahoma city bomb. as we learn more facts, we'll understand better the motivation, but people now i think in the terrorism co
of nato. we have forces in international military operations. >> woodruff: afghanistan. >> libya. >> libya, and we are also doing peace facilitation which can make us a target. we have been on sri lanka. we have been in haiti, sudan, lots of places talking to people, which don't necessarily share our views on that. >> woodruff: as you look at these pictures of your home country, what comes to your mind. >> i'm saddened to see the report. you just had here. i live 10 minutes walking distance from the prime minister's office and this is a lively part of oslo and knowing that norway has been attacked by somebody, it's hard to understand, all my friends in norway are still in shock. there will be some hard days to come. and we are not sure how to deal with this at the moment. and there are so many unanswered questions. why did they do this? was he alone. is it part of an international terror organization which the police say is probably not. but how can people go to bed tonight. >> woodruff: well, that's a very good question. how can people go to bed tonight. ahnders tvegard here in washington
to afghanistan or iraq or any soldiers or troops they have there. that's all speculation right now. we don't know if it was an intentional explosion or if it was something that was a complete accident such as a gas explosion. police are not releasing any information right now. again, whatever it was was powerful enough. interesting to note, though, i heard on one of the other reports that this is a time when many people actually take vacations in oslo, so they're away from the city center and along the coastal areas. so perhaps that was a good thing. this could have been much worse had it been at the height of rush hour or the height of the time when people are actually in the city. >> thanks so much. we'll continue to allow you to do some more reporting on that and touch base with you momentarily. a lot of images you're seeing were shot by this person i'm talking to. christian, you were rolling as you were walking around to get a handle about what happened. what was your first experience with this explosion? where were you? >> sure, sure. well, at the time of the explosion i was working at a nea
include the involvement by the norwegian military in actions in afghanistan. there are norwegian soldiers there, there is an al-qaeda official from the northern part of iraq that sought sanctuary in norway and perhaps even more disturbing is the report that just in the past year one of the main newspapers of norway which does have offices in that central area of oslo they, too, printed as other newspapers did in europe these cartoons of the prophet mohamed of the muslim faith, and as we all know, that has been a major bone of contention. this is what we're following right now, bill. bill: all right, greg, thank you. that tangled wreckage of a car might be a precious clue in all of this, and it might be the clue or not. it's not clear what threats were leveled against the government or prime minister, but we're working through all that. it is breaking news in oslo, norway, here on america's "amers newsroom." patti ann: brian terry was gunned down with a weapon the feds were supposed to be tracking, and terry's cousin gave some emotional testimony on capitol hill. now we're gearing up for r
in both afghanistan and in libya. now, martha, you know, how quickly we forget the train bombings in madrid, the bus and the metro bombings in london. but if you're living in europe, you just get the feeling today like here we go again. martha? martha: here we go again. greg, thank you very much. we'll get more on that from greg burke, also ambassador john bolton is enroute to our washington bureau. we expect to have him with us live moments from now and his take on that. that'll be about five minutes from now, so stay tuned for that. >>> in the meantime, we have got this extreme weather going on in the united states. an epic heat wave that is baking a huge portion of this country. in fact, roughly half of all americans are coping with temperatures that are in the near triple digits right now. record breaking tops reported in the kansas -- temperatures reported in kansas all the way across to new york city. and it is not just unpleasant, it is dangerous in many places. at least 22 people have died related to this heat, and can there are new warnings that that number could be risin
. norway has troops in afghanistan. they support the operations in libya. both of those are lightning rods. and perhaps even more to the point, last year, a norwegian paper reprinted those danish cartoons that caused such a firestorm in 2005. >> that's right. we know you'll be following this story extensively for us. thank you for joining us. >>> now gleets back to lara at the park. >> it's hot here in central park. 27 million people think this first one is pretty insane. it is a video that has gone viral. it's shot in broom, australia. two small dogs are using their -- well, their herding skills to try to gather a group of sharks. that wasn't insane enough. one dog decides he's going to take it to the next level and bite one of the sharks. the dog was fine. the shark swam away, intact, perhaps his ego a little bruised. but everybody is good on that one. >>> next up, i love the story of a baby giraffe giving us all hope. that is her name. she is living in the topeka zoo and proving that these boots are made for walking. she was born with her feet on backwards. front to back, so with the he
